TUG Banner Photo - TS Von in Alaska

Another great Alaskan RV Adventure made possible through our timeshare ownership! This was the third time we've bartered with a family in Alaska . . . two weeks in our Waikiki timeshare for two weeks with their 29' motorhome.

Brian . . . I'm thinking my TUG Banner photos may have been disabled when I did some clean up over on my Facebook page. The photos are still there, but I moved them from one folder to another, which would have changed their location's URL. I'll repost them and see if that fixes it.

SilentG asked "Which do you enjoy more RV or timeshare vacations?"

That's like asking which child you like better . . . LOL!

They are so different, and our RV vacations (made possible via timeshare ownership) have always been in Alaska. ANY vacation in Alaska is outstanding, but again, hard to say I enjoy them "more" than say Yellowstone Nat'l Park/Wyoming. They're similar in a lot of ways, but to be fair, Alaska is very unique and so I suppose that gives is a slight edge in the "enjoyment" factor for me.

I do have a "public" Facebook photo album with the TUG Banner photos I've taken. I can't believe how many we have done . . . and yet, we've also missed some pretty cool trips with the banner as well (like the two weeks in Scotland & the UK in 2006).

The places where I/we have taken the banner and snapped photos:
* The three Alaskan RV Adventures (2010, 2014 & 2016)
* Wyndham Nashville (Christmas 2009)
* Wyndham La Belle Maison, New Orleans (June 2009)
* Grand Canyon National Park/Wyndham Flagstaff (March 2009)
* Connemara Country Cottage, Galway, Ireland (April 2012)
* Wyndham Shawnee, The Poconos, PA (October 2013)
* Wyndham Westwinds, North Myrtle Beach (Christmas 2014)
* Wyndham Riverwalk in San Antonio (January 2015)
* Carriage House, Las Vegas (June 2015)

Yes TSVon, my daughter commented that this person travels a lot. I told her you were full time time sharing and she was amazed.
Happy New Year!

Actually . . . I only wish I could travel and timeshare full time! I travel for personal about 3-5 weeks per year, plus about the same number of trips for work.

This may be a little late but if there is a banner available, I will be going to New Orleans on 8-19-17 and I would love to take a banner if there is one available.
